Subject: yup, Jerry sounds plug-awful
The first thing I notice about this show is how short it is, especially for 1985 standards. Knowing how horrible Jerry looked in '85, and how pained his voice often sounded then, my first guess was that this is a short show because Jerry wasn't feeling good. Upon reading the reviews of other copies, I seem to be correct. High heat and high humidity are really unconfortable for those who are overweight, and combined with Jerry's chemical dependencies I can onlyimagine that he felt terrible this night. His voice sure sounds like it, and that Scarlet>Touch seems to confirm it, as if he wants to simly get this show over with. That stated, the Touch is as strong as any from the period.

Nevertheless, this tape sounds AWESOME and boy I could list scores of shows that I wish had audience recordings, amplitheater shows in particular, that sound as good as this one. And, as usual, Drums>Space is awesome. But I can't give this show a stellar rating....5 stars for recording, 2 for performance (except Drums>Space, which is 5 stars)

Subject: Morning Dew...
Didn't have time to listen to the whole show, so take my rating with a grain of salt, but hell, blistering Morning Dew, as well as some other gems.

Subject: Drumz & Space and then some.....
you're so right Rezco. Terrific D>S as is typical of '85. Don't overlook the sweet melodic jam into the Wheel either, or the Bird Song, or the Straw or the.............. : )

What a terrific recording. Nice job by the Albix-McCue team. Keep em coming.
